Mixing tracks with more features than a DAW provides

Regarding features like volume fader automation, post-gain adjustments and the setup of mixing scenarios, there is a new audio plug-in "FaderWorks" that does a decent job:

It comprises a set of volume faders (128 instances at maximum) which can be configured to "know" each other. This feature is independent of where the instances are placed in the host application.

Examples of usage are crossfades, quick A/B-comparisons, virtual aux tracks (dynamically assigned), overdrive of other effects/signals with simultaneous control of the output volume, ...

You can take a look at it here: http://www.vertexdsp.com

FaderWorks is available for PC (VST) and Mac (VST and AU, Universal Binary).

While the idea itself seems to be quite obvious, there is a lot of non-obvious capabilities behind it, e.g. solo/mute/bypass switches on two different logical levels, grouping of instances while keeping properties of individual instances, etc.

FaderWorks has been updated to v1.1.

FaderWorks is now able to manage latency/delay assignments across all instances. It can be used for e.g. latency compensation in a multitrack environment if the host or other plug-ins do not support this or for delaying a group of tracks in the DAW environment.

You set e.g. a latency on one track and all other tracks get delayed automatically by the entered amount. This feature is switchable to allow the usage of instances with and without latency compensation.

Is is still available for the introductory price until 31-Jan-07.
